I'm descended from some of the Nordic invaders of the British Isles.
I found out that my dad's mother (Mrs Smith, mtDNA U5a1a) is related to Cheddar Man.
Also, we were suprised to find out that my mother comes from a line of Skolt Sami.(Laplander)
I hope I’m related to somebody cool in history.
The results are interesting although all they do is verify what they already knew. They came from the Inner Hebrides, but before that they can be traced to Scandinavia.
Of course it would do me no good to test as my Mother was a member of the clan.
I think we do too — Nordic invaders in Britain. Last time we were there, we stayed at a B&B in Northumberland. The guy there looked EXACTLY like my Norwegian grandfather. They could have been brothers. I thot, ‘Hmmm, and the Vikings stopped here, for sure.’
According to the RLDS genealogy web site, I’m descended from the bog man.
